Transform Something Old Into Something New, Part III – What’s Your Type

by Patricia Vining

WB-TypeTips Today’s post is about a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I am both a teacher and a student of all things typographic. Like color, type has a personality and can communicate volumes about your WeddingBrand. Are you a romantic—there is a typeface for that (actually, there are a zillion typefaces for that). Are you an urban modern, again, lots of beautiful choices out there. Though becoming a master of typography takes years of study, here are a few tips to help you make the perfect choice. After reviewing this infographic, choose two or three (at most) typefaces that best reflect your WeddingBrand. We will use them later in this series to layout your wedding invitations.
